Welcome to the OMS team, Ms. Craig! Here is an introduction from our new 6th Grade English Teacher and Cheer Coach: "Hi, everyone! I'm Miss Craig, but will be Mrs. Allen by the time school starts! I will be teaching 6th-grade English and coaching the cheerleading squad. This will be my second year teaching, but my first year teaching middle school. Some fun facts about me are that I am a dog mom to my sweet golden retriever, Lina, I love to travel, I could probably eat pasta every day for the rest of my life, and I might have an unhealthy obsession with strawberry vanilla Olipop. I can't wait to meet everyone and be a part of the Valley culture. Go Warcolts!"
